Question about 1995 Subaru Impreza
The 95 definately has a BTIS (brake transmission interlock solenoid) It is probably burnt out and not allowing the lever to move out of the way of the shifter. They can be pretty pricy to replace, fortunately you can get the solenoid seperate and not have tobuy the whole shifter. For the time being you can release the shifter by removing a small tab found on the shifter bezel. once you remove this small tab you will be able to fit your key into it and manually release the shifter. Subaru put this for emergency situations, like a dead battery and the tow truck driver needs to get your car into nuetral. You should be able to find detailed instructions in the owners manual under emergency

Try replacing the transmission filter and the trannie fluid. Mine would only go in reverse, and now it drives pretty well. This year has a screw on filter. Hope this helps

There is a locking solenoid under the plastic shroud around you shifter. When you put on your brake the solenoid is supposed to pull back to release the shifter.
The buzzing you are hearing is that solenoid trying to pull back. Going to have to replace it.
